Description

Considering the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19, on the strong recommendation of the CDC and state government officials, the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty is cancelling its March 14th Shamrock Shuffle 5k/10k & Community Block Party. The health and safety of participants and the community is our top priority. Please check our Facebook Page and website for additional details regarding a Virtual Shamrock Shuffle run, and t-shirt pick-up details.

Each year, the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty holds this event to encourage and support community connection and philanthropy.  Total event proceeds from The Shamrock Shuffle are invested back into the community through annual grants to support local nonprofit organizations and participating Shuffle Gives Back Charity Teams. Please consider contributing your event registration fee to the Community Foundation in support of local charities.

The Community Foundation will establish a Community Health Fund to respond to current and future community health needs, enabling us to respond to the effects of this public health crisis through activities like health screenings, senior citizen services, and food pantry staples.  Please consider donating here.

Thank you for your understanding and generous support!

When can I pick up my race packet?

Individual participants may come pick up their race packet (shirt, medal, cups) April 6th - April 10th from 10 AM to 5 PM.  Pick up location will be the Community Foundation office: 8366 Princeton Glendale Rd. West Chester 45069, Park National Bank building 2nd floor. If you would like to pick up for 10+ people please email a list of names and sizes to karen.gibbs@wclfoundation.org with when you plan to come by. 

Charity Teams or Sponsor Groups may send one or two people to pick up for the whole group today (3/13) until 5 PM or any day next week from 10 AM - 5 PM.

At this point, we are just trying to limit the influx of people to our office based on recommendations from state government officials and the CDC. 

Will the Charity Team I registered on still receive a grant?

Yes! Charity Team grants will still be calculated based on the number of registrants on the team. If you request a refund, however, we will have to deduct your registration from the team total which will reduce their grant funding. Final Charity Team grants will be calculated beginning the week of 3/23. 

What about refunds?

We ask you to carefully consider your refund request, as 100% of event proceeds benefit the registered Charity Teams and local nonprofit organizations. We keep ZERO in operating dollars. The more refunds we process the more these groups will be missing out on needed support, particularly at a time when they may have to cancel their own fundraising events due to the current public health crisis. If you submit a refund request, also keep in mind that you will not be able to pick up your race packet or participate in the Shamrock Shuffle Virtual Run. Below is the link to request a refund. Please fill out the form for each person for whom you would like refunded. Refund requests will be accepted through Friday 3/20 at 12:00 noon.  It may take up to 4 weeks to fully process refunds. Processing fees will be deducted from your refund.
